2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crisp clear yellow with a white film of a head rises up to become a fluffy white head with a swirl of the glass. Funky slightly citrusy aroma is very light and bland all around. Mondial 1T (Capflu)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear pale golden, foamy white head. Aroma is sweet clean grainy malt. The palate delivers the same clean pale malts, but is a tad thin, with a light grassy/herbal hop presence in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My Bottom Line:
Mild cereal sugars and feeble herbal hops sadly summarize this super clean but boring brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the pale straw gold.
-Rice appears in the second half of each sip, not helping the flavor profile much.
-The nose is rather vacuous.
-Mouthfeel is almost frothy, which is pleasant.
-These guys can do much more interesting quenchers (their Pilsener and Weizen come to mind).

Clear gold, creamy head, rather shy appearance. Watery, thin, mineral, short flat finish. Not much here.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle (341ml). Via trade with mouton_noire. Bubbly clear pale gold, fluffy white head. Cheap corn aroma, dry, vegetal, a bit funky but not in a good way. Dry stale sweet corn taste, cardboardy grain, something vaguely bitter pretending to be hops, nasty sweet finsh - watery, flat, sticky, ugly aftertaste - this is basically Blue Light - maybe a hint better.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow beer with little or no head. Carbonation is quite weak. Aroma is a bit sweet with some very subtle malt. Taste is quite refreshing with a sweet ending. Quite refreshing for those hot summer days but nothing great or to seek too often.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Mondial de la Bière 2004. Health sample serving from these boys! 1 ticket buys you a 3/4 pint. Thin, white head with lots of carbonation and a clear gold body. Nose of bananas. Wheaty and fizzy. Boring.
